If you’re looking at planning a wedding in Sorrento, you’ve probably noticed that there are lots of options. In fact, you might be feeling overwhelmed with the amount of choice. One of the first options you’ll see is from large destination wedding planning companies, offering packages that include everything you think you need – accommodation, your wedding ceremony, reception venue, flowers, even a photographer…they sound so easy, don’t they? What can possibly go wrong!? However, if you want a wedding that is personal to you and to have complete flexibility in choosing your own suppliers, you may want to think again. I’m Cheryl, founder of Bella Sposa – a Sorrento wedding and event planner. Allow me 10 minutes to explain why booking a wedding with Bella Sposa will be fun, exciting and, most importantly, the personal experience it deserves to be!
I believe that just because you’re planning an Italian destination wedding and may make many of the decisions remotely, you shouldn’t be any less involved than if you were marrying at home. When you work with me, I’m as passionate and excited about your Sorrento wedding as you are! I take the time to get to know you as a couple, finding out about your interests and your story. You’ve chosen the romantic and beautiful Sorrento area to get married for the same reasons I’ve chosen it as my home – its timeless, magical pull and blending of tradition and elegant style. Planning your wedding in the Sorrento area together will be a true partnership, and I want you to be immersed and excited by every detail.
Beyond your Wildest Dreams
My favourite thing to tell my couples about their Sorrento wedding is that anything is possible! At Bella Sposa there is no such thing as a standard package – your experience is entirely bespoke and personalised. When you get married in Sorrento you have so many options available to you, and I can (and often do!) ask venues and suppliers to change anything you don’t like. From the tables, chairs and glassware to the even shaking up their standard menus. We can create the Italian destination wedding vision inside your head. Dreaming of gastronomic experiences? In this part of the world, who wouldn’t be!? I often advise my couples to add traditional elements to their day, such as mozzarella-making demos, live cooking stations and fun bands to immerse your guests in the Italian experience and get their feet tapping!
Nothing is too imaginative – as your Sorrento wedding planner, I’ll help you create a wedding beyond your wildest dreams.
You didn’t choose Sorrento for your wedding just to get married abroad – you chose it for its world-renowned beauty, you chose it because it’s Italy. You want your wedding to be the epitome of Italian romance and charm, with its famous diamond waters, meandering cliffside roads and fresh citrus fruits and seafoods reflected in your day. Luckily, when you choose to work with me you get years of local knowledge and fluency in the language of love. I can recommend the best suppliers for an authentic, inspired Italian destination wedding – if it’s not perfetto, I won’t recommend it. You’re in safe hands with Bella Sposa!
Here in the South of Italy it is definitely a case of who you know, and living here has allowed me to create trusted relationships with a range of suppliers who I have direct access to. The stress of communications across time zones and language barriers is removed when you work with me, and I’m your right hand woman right here in Sorrento to answer any queries or questions. I pride myself on offering direct, consistent contact to my couples and we chat regularly via video call and over the phone. These elements are often lacking when booking through a larger agency, as you may not even know your planner or not be able to speak to the same person every time!
A destination wedding is not just about one day- it’s a whole experience and I cannot wait to introduce you to this very special place. You’ll want to soak up everything the area has to offer; shops and stalls overflowing with locally sourced foods and keepsakes, unexpected churches and historic buildings round every corner, and winding cliffside roads with endless blue views across the Bay of Naples. I can recommend the best beach clubs to visit, provide exclusive offers on days and nights out and even assist with accommodation and your arrival into the resort too. My job is to make the process of planning a destination wedding in Sorrento as easy as possible, making it not only an unforgettable wedding but creating lasting memories to share with your closest family and friends.
Styling & Decoration
Included in my service as your Sorrento wedding planner is the styling for your wedding. Every year I invest in new decorative accessories, which I will personally add in for the finishing flourishes. I also make a point of helping you get the most out of what you have spent, by reusing and adapting elements of your styling and florals throughout the day. I have been known to deconstruct a wedding arch or two to give la rifinitura, the finishing touch, to the vision. The below images show me precariously taking the roses from this clifftop wedding after the ceremony…to add to the tables for the reception!
So tell me, how did I do? Choosing me as your planning partner for your Sorrento wedding will be an unforgettable experience – together we’ll embrace this stunning area of the world and you’ll be transported here with every exciting decision.
